The seventh song of the album Schweinepest (pig desease). This was recorded as a joke on New Years Eve. Like most of the songs, the song text was created while playing. The story is about a wild man coming to a modern city. It has nothing to do with Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues". ( 1 reviews )
Our old friend Jean Nine brings us angry and very distorted sounds inspired by DJ Die, DJ Krust and Roni Size. Drumba from Bristol, but composed in Finland ;) [This work was originally released in 'tracker' format (IT/XM/MOD), and has been converted to OGG for preservation here - the original 'tracker' version is also stored elsewhere in this collection.] ( 1 reviews )
Bernard Timberg analyzes the songs of Bob Dylan looking for Jewish themes and imagery. He identifies messianic longings in Quinn the Eskimo, references to Jewish burial practices in Masters of War, and finds significance in the fact that the initials of John Wesley Harding can be interpreted as the name of the Jewish God, YHWH. Issues such as social justice and a sense of out-sideness imbue the songs of Dylan as they do the history of the Jewish people. Timberg also interviews a number of...

Allen Ginsberg lecture on poetry, reading and discussing the lyrics to some of Bob Dylan's songs, talking about how to arrange lines of poetry on a page, and how phrasing relates to ideas and breath. Ginsberg looks at his own poem, "Wichita vortex sutra," and touches on the work of William Carlos Williams, Gregory Corso, and Kurt Schwitters's Concrete poetry. Part of a course series by Ginsberg in fall 1983. ( 3 reviews )
Wilhelm Reich, The Mass Psychology of Fascism. Wilhelm Reich was a psychologist and author who came to the United States in order to escape Fascism and the ravages of the Second World War. The American authorities showed their subsequent appreciation for his work by burning many of Dr Reich's books in 1950s. (Not unlike how the Nazis did twenty years before.) He died on November 3rd 1957 in Lewisburgh Penitentiary. In his will, Reich stated that his unpublished papers were to be locked away...

Recorded on July 25, 1925 in New York City. The Ramblers on this recording includes Poole on vocals and banjo, Posey Rorer on fiddle and Norman Woodlief on guitar. This a gambling tune, with many floating lines that have appeared in older tunes. It is thought that the phrase "let your deal go down" refers to a popular card game among gamblers during the early part of the 20th Century called the Georgia Skin Game.

There's been a lot of talk about Judas lately. New information coming to light and making people re-think their long-held assumptions about him and his story. Well, I don't know nuthin' 'bout no biblical history (that's actually not entirely true, but I'm making my way towards something here, so let's just move along), but all that talk got me to thinkin' 'bout that other Judas story them rock and roll folks are always yappin' 'bout (I will now end the faux-folksy - hmm, would that be faux-ksy?...

Reorded on July 23, 1928. This tune is clearly related, if not the same tune, to the old-timey and bluegrass standard "Cripple Creek." Alan Jabbour has speculated that the "Cripple Creek" title may be related to certain labor disputes in the Cripple Creek area of Colorado during 1903 and 1904. On the other hand, a Cripple Creek flows through Grayson and Carroll Counties in Southwest Virginia. As for the title "Shootin' Creek," there exists a Shooting Creek region...

Recorded on May 20, 1929 in Chicago. Justice was a contemporary of Frank Hutchison, where he evidently worked in the mines with Hutchison and played music with him. This tune was recorded by Luke Jordan in 1927 as "Cocaine Blues" (not to be confused with "Cocaine Habit Blues" recorded by the Memphis Jug Band). This tune is one of most surreal in old-time country. While there are clear references to the partaking of the white stuff, there is also seemingly unrelated...

Recorded on September 20, 1926 in New York City. Poole sings and plays the banjo with Posey Rorer on fiddle and Ron Harvey on guitar on this tune about the McKinley assasination. Poole and his Ramblers were one of the most popular old-time string bands during the late twenties. Poole has proven to be enormously influential with his 3-finger banjo playing, which developed later into the famous Earl Scruggs bluegrass-style. Poole was quite the hell-raiser, dying at the age of 39 in 1931; it... ( 7 reviews ) Topics: Music, Acoustic, Ballad, Blues, Country, Old-Time Appalachian, 78rpm Source: 78RPM>CD>MP3
